Dude. I have all the classic rock Chicago discs...I listen to them all the time. And this sounds nothing like those discs.

This sounds nothing like old Chicago whatsoever. And what's up with the lyrics? Did someone convert to "the religion of peace" or something?

MIKE Wrote: With falling album sales across his four releases culminating in the last one which barely reached half a million units it’s fair to say that Daughtry felt that they had to change the formula. I'm truly saddened to hear that.In a world where Newman and Find Me release cracking good hard rock albums, isn't there a place for a harder rockin' Daughtry? Oh well. *shrug* I agree

Hey Shawn! Yeah. I agree. Both the second and third albums were just dead on the money for my tastes. Thought 'Leave This Town' was a bit heavier sounding. But both are great discs. I understand it's just a business decision from the standpoint of label execs. But his fan base is composed of people who liked him as a rocker. So if you make him over, you risk alienating them AND failing to

...decide it was time to suck? This band used to be, hands down, one of my favorite melodic rock bands. The first three disc were all top notch imo. Then cometh 'Baptized' and WTF? The great vocal melodies are still there. But gone are the crunch-tastic guitars and driving drums, to be replaced by synths and string pads and drum machines. Color me...deeply disappointed. If this is his new dire

I'm a drummer with a doctorate! Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

...the HMV just off Oxford Circus is still a pretty impressive collection of music.

Have no idea about Paris. And it's been a while since I've been to London. Those who live there may know better. However, based on what I recall when I was last there, you will definitely want to visit Camden High Street/Camden Market. That entire area is just filled with little shops selling all things rock and metal...along with everything else musical. Also Upper Street in Islington. Good shop

More to the point, I was trying to make clear that drummers back in the 80's were not commonly using click tracks. Most likely, the headphones were simply an alternative to monitor wedges. I tried 'em myself for a time back in the day but the technology just wasn

I was telling the OP that monitors are essential to hearing yourself and your fellow band members onstage. I'm a drummer of over 30 years live experience, so I'm far from being naive (spell much?)

Thanks for the link. I'll check out the data. But I like to filter it critically. Real thought takes time. :) By the way, wasn't Big Al calling for polar ice melt and rising sea levels to take us all out in 'An Inconvenient Truth'? Given that, what is one supposed to make of the massive increase in polar ice over the last five years? By the way, I've a sneaking feeling that one of 'The Big

RumTumJM Wrote: When you see videos from the 80s & 90s with the drummers wearing the big, old-school headphones, isn't that evidence that they are using some kind of backing track or sampling? No. Not necessarily. Rock drummers (and all rock musicians really) have always needed and used monitors in order to hear their bandmates instruments as well as vocals. And headphones back in the da

As all human contributions taken together amount to between 4 and 7 percent (depending on whose chart you read) of all global CO2 emissions, I find it quite difficult to buy into the idea that global climate change is primarily antropogenic in nature. In fact, I think it's largely hysteria. That is not to say that climate change isn't real - I'm NOT a "denier". Just that I do not be
